It is probable that there are some errors among' the names and de- 
scriptions of the rehcs herein catalogued; but I beg to inform all who 
ma}' take an interest in the collection that I have, in many instances, 
been aided by the suggestions and advice of well known experts aad 
students in historical and antiquarian tore, ^ly own experience as a 
collector, for thirty years, has been replete with study and research, 
and the amount of labor performed and the expense incurred during 
the period can scarcely be imagined. On the whole, I believe the cata- 
logue to be very nearl}' correct. I invite the criticism and desire the 
opinions of all who may be interested in a collection of this character, 
with the view of correcting whatever errors may exist. The history of 
each piece is given, so far as it is known to me. At the time of each 
purchase, I invariably copied all the historic memoranda obtainable, or 
recorded the tradition as related by the former owner. 

The collection of Guns and Pistols is the most complete one in this 
country. It dates back to the early Crossbow, from the Crossbow- 
gun to the Match-lock, Wheel-lock, Flint-lock, and Percussion-lock. 
There is a ^•ery complete collection of the different guns used by the 
United States Government during the Civil \\'ar. There are no guns 
in the collection made after the year 1865. except a small mnubcr o: 
Mauser ritles, obtained, with some other relics oi tiie war with Spain 
(1898), in Cuba and Puerto Rico. In addition to the guns there are 
several cannon, from the early ages down to the Civil War. 


The C(>lkcti<jn also coiUains: 

Prehistoric liiii)UMiK'nts of the Stone A.qe. 

Indian curios of the nineteenth century. 

Revolutionary War relics. 

A larc^e collection of relics of the Civil War. Nearly everythinc:; 
has been secured direct from parties who took them from the battle- 
fields, or from those who have owned them since the close of the war. 

Collection of old carved Powder-horns, from the French and Indian 
Wars, the Revolutionary War. and the War of 1812: also some that 
were carried in the Civil War. 

Miscellaneous collection of old Indentures, Commissi(jns. Manu- 
scripts, Newspapers, Pamphlets, Badges, etc. 

There are about ten thousand pieces in this interesting and valuable 
collection, which is deserving of a place in some Sta^e or Ciovcrniuental 
institution, it being a museum in itself. 

The collection is now on e.\hi])ition at the Wadsworth AthencCum, 
Hartford, C Onn.

This carbine was used in the service on the southern side in the 
Civil War. Some bright mechanic thought it a good idea to 
put a cofifee mill into the butt of the stock, as it would be con- 
venient for the soldier to grind his cofifee at his leisure ; very 
few of them were made. This carbine has one of those coffee 
mills in the butt of the stock in fine working order. It must 
have been a very handy thing for the soldier who had the car- 
bine, and the coffee to grind. During the Civil War this car- 
bine was captured w^ith many others by the United States. The 
v. S. Government sent about 4,000 Sharps' rifles and carbines 
to Sharps' rifle factory at Hartford, Conn., to be repaired, and 
this carbine was found among the lot. It was presented to S.

company in the Fourteenth Georgia Regiment, and was sta- 
tioned at Ox Ridge, September i, 1862, when General Phil. 
Kearney rode into or near the Confederate camp through a mis- 
take. He supposed it to be the L'nion camp. When he saw- 
bis mistake, and rebel guns pointed at him, and ordered to halt. 
he said: 'Don't fire; I am a friend.' On saying this, he 
wheeled his horse and put in full speed to escape if possible. He 
lay flat on his horse to escape the bullets whistling in the air 
near him. But one fatal shot struck and killed him, and it is 
said by authority of Air. Perry and others of his company that 
this gun was the one that sent the fatal bullet that killed General 
• Phil. Kearney, September 1, 1862." This gun was presented to 
this collection by Captain E. A. IVTry of Hartford, Conn., v. ho 
is a brother of L. G. Perry, deceased, of Dublin, Ga.. anil irom

Pomeroy, coming from England in 1635, made the first guns 
at Windsor, Conn., A.D. 1637. A.D. 1640 Eldad Pomeroy, 
son of Eltweed, was given a grant of 1,000 acres of land in 
Hampshire county, Mass., for his skill as a gunmaker. General 
Seth Pomeroy, fourth generation from Eltweed, officer in 
French and Indian Wars, seems to have given the Pomeroy 
guns their highest finish, at Northampton, Mass. A.D. 1800 
Lemuel Pomeroy, sixth generation from Eltweed, removed to 
Pittsfield, Mass., bringing same anvil used by Eldad and Seth, 
and continued the manufactory of guns till 1840. A.D. 1893

384 Hall's B. L. Flint-lock Rifle, cal. 535/100, paper cartridge; 

stamped on the lock, " John H. Hah, Harper's Ferry, U. S., 
1832." The first American breech-loading gun was the " Hall." 
The first record patented in the United States was dated May 
21, 181 1, and the evidence sustained by records of the Ordnance 
Bureau in the War Department proved that John H. Hall of 
North Yarmouth, the patentee, was the- inventor of the first 
breech-loading arm receiving attention from the Government of 
the United States. Hall at a later date suggested the manufac- 
ture of 1,000 of his patent rifles for use in the campaign of i8t2. 
The official records indicate that in 1816 one hundred of these 
arms were made and issued to a company of riflemen, and the 



reports thereon were favorable. In 1818, 10,000 of these rifles 
were issued to the United States troops. In 1825, two com- 
panies of United States troops stationed at Fortress Monroe, 
Va., were armed with Hall's rifles, and the same were in use in 
1827, during which year 2,000 stand were completed. Mr. Hall 
was sent to Harper's Ferry about 1818 and superintended the 
manufacture of his rifles until 1840. Many of them were made 
after that date. There is evidence that Hall's breech-loading 
carbine and rifle were used with great success in the Black Hawk 
and Seminole wars, and in the war with Mexico ; also 3,520 were 
in the service of the United States the early part of the Civil 
War. [2138.]

520 John Brown's Pike. The blade is 10 inches long by 2 inches 

wide, with double edge and iron guard. This pike, with many 
others, was manufactured by Charles Blair, Collinsville, Conn., 
in 1857, for John Brown, with which he made his famous raid 
at Harper's Ferry, \'a., on Sunday night, October 16, 1859. I^ 
was presented by Warren Burr to E. W. Rowley, Hartford, 
Conn. Mr. Rowlev presented it to A. E. Brooks Februarv 15. 
1888. [1 178.] 

The history of this pike was published in the Hartford Times 
November 2, 1859. It said : 

" Brown's pike we have in our office, through the politeness of Mr. 
A. B. Redfield of this city; one of the pikes made at Collinsville, Conn., 
and intended to be put into the hands of the negroes of the South for 
the massacre of their masters. It was brought back to Connecticut from 
Richmond by Rev. Mr. Willey of Waterbury, on his return from the 
Episcopal Convention in Virginia. Gov. Wise presented it to him. It 
is rather ugly looking. The blade of iron is fashioned like a lance. It 
is about ten inches long, with double edges, and furnished with an iron 
guard at the place where it enters the socket. Into this was fitted an 
ash handle about six feet long. Mr. Willey has removed the handle 
for convenience in transporting the weapon. This pike is stamped No. 
729. It was probably conveyed with thousands of similar weapons from 
Connecticut to the reach of Brown. A new handle has been replaced." 

The following letter from Charles Blair was published in the 

Hartford Times, NovemIxT 5. 1859: 

Collinsville. November 4. 1859. 

" In the latter part of February or early part of March, 1857. Brown 
came to this town and held a public meeting. At the close of the meeting 
or the following day, he exhibited some weapons which he claimed to 
have taken from Capt. H. C Pate at the battle of Black Jack. Among 
others was a bowie-knife or dirk, having a blade eight inches long. 
Brown remarked that such an instrument fixed to a pole about six feet 
long would be a capital weapon to place in the hands of the settlers in 
Kansas, to keep in their cabins to defend tlieniselvcs against any attack 
by border ruffians or wild beasts, and asked me what it would cost to 
make one thousand. I replied that I would make them for one dollar 
each. But to my surprise he drew up a contract for one thousand to 
be completed in three months, he (Brown) agreeing to pay five hundred 
dollars within ten days, and the balance within thirty days thereafter. 
Brown placed five hundred and fifty dollars in my hands within specified 
time, and as it was dull times and the contract profitable, I commenced 
the job, and forged about five hundred. At the expiration of the thirty 
days. Brown wrote me from Springfield, Mass., saying that he was un- 
able to raise the four hundred and fifty dollars to complete his contract. 

" Soon after the receipt of his letter, I stopped the work. Brown 
wrote me Feb. 10, 1858. In his letter he requested me to send as many 

./. /:. BROOKS COLI.liCTlOX. 85 

I- 1 I'clt willing t«) ill tlic unfuu>iied state of tlie contract. The next I 
knew of Brown, he called at my house on the third day of June last, 1859. 
He said to me that he had never l)efore been able to fulfill his contract 
with me, but could now do it, and wished I would go on and finish up 
the job. I replied that I was very differently situated now, and could 
not do it. Soon after Brown left CoUinsville. I agreed with C. Hart & 
Son of Unionville. Conn., to finish up the pikes, as they were called, which 
I had commenced in 1857. and also to make four hundred and fifty more, 
making in all about nine hundred and fifty. CHARLES BLAIR."

2080 This Figaire of Bacchus was carved from a log of wood in the 
old Windham jail at Windham, Conn., by British prisoners of 
war, who were confined there in 1776. It is said to have been 
done with their jackknives, the only tools allowed them. These 
prisoners were captured by the Americans in Long" Island 
Sound on a British ship, the Boiiibrig, June 10. 1776, and 
brought to \\ indham as prisoners of war. Their names were 
as follows : 

Edward Sneyd, commander of H. ]\I. S. Bombrig. He was 
born at Keele Hall, near Newcastle, Staffordshire, England^ 
of English parents. December 5, 1754. He was connnissioned 

at Portsmouth, in the month of December, 177 



cruising about a short time on particular service, was dis- 
patched to the American war, where he is said to have dis- 
tinguished himself, but on the loth of June. 1776, the ship with 
the conuuander and nearly all hands was taken prisoner by the 
Americans on Long Island Sound. 

John Coggin, boatswain of the Boiiibrig, was bi^rn of Irish 
parents, at Killegan county. Meath, Ireland, in ]\farch. 1731. 
He joined the Boiubrig at Portsmouth, with Conuuander 


John Russell was born of i",nL;li>h panntN, near Ramsay, 
1 lan)|)>]iirc. j-ji^iand. in Xovcnihcr. 174';. and was ai)i)rcnticcd 
to a carjicntcr, and. liaviuj^- served liis linu-. entered the dock- 
yard at Portsmouth, in April, 177J. where he remained until 
the Bonihri<^ was commissioned al thai p.)n, and tlien joined 
the carpenter's crew of the ship, in which ca])acily he served 
until taken i)risoner (ju LonjL;- Island Sound. Russell had 
served a full time api)renticeshii). and it is to him undoubtedly 
that the credit of the pro(luclion of the statue of P.accluis be- 

William Cook was born in March. 1744. at L'aistor. near 
Great Yarmouth, in the county of Norfolk, Kuf^land. He was 
drafted to Portsmouth to join the Bo))ihrii^ as an A. IV and was 
taken prisoner with the others on bt)ard, as before mentioned. 

These prisoners by the aid of a Tory afterward made their 
escape from the jail the fore ])art of November, 177^). < hi the 
night after breaking- jail they stole a canoe near Norwich Land- 
ing, with which they attemjned to cross the Sound to Long 
Lsland. but at the entrance of the Race, near Gull Island, the 
canoe oxerset. when all of them except Coggin were drowned. 
Coggin was the onl}- one left to tell the story. 

This image was ])resented b\ the prisoners to the Widow 
Gary, who had shown them some act of kindness, and was put 
U]) as a sign in front of her hotel, on Windham Green, now 
the house of Widow Joseph Huntington. It was afterward 
removed to the old Fitch Tavern, on the site of the brick build- 
ing occupied until recently as a public house. .Mr. John b'itch 
having married the Widow ( 'ar\ . It was afterward sold bv 
the heirs of Mr. h'itcli to Lucius .\])be. b's(|.. who kei)t the 
Staniford House, \u 1827, and was then ele\ated on a brancii 
of an old elm nearbw In 1840 it came into the possession of 
^Ir. Zaphny Ciu-tis. In 1X3^ it fell from its elevated position 
on the l)ig elm to the ground, breaking one (^i its arms and 
otherwise injuring it. It was then laid aside till iS5<), when 
it was purchased of the heirs of ^fr. Curtis by Mr. William 
Cunnnings. 1)rought to Williniantic, repaired by ^^. S. I'ow- 
dish, and ])ainted by Mr. Charle> Lillie. 

This singular et^igy, or image, of r.acchus was jnu-chased of 
^Nlr. Cimimings by its present owmr in \X^n, and was brought 
to Hartford in 1S72. 

Tt is now over a centiu-\ old. and all lovers of the curious, as 
well as those who have l)een familiar with its peculiar work- 
manship in former years, arc cordially invited to examine it. 

The image in 26} inches high, and keg 21 inches long.

I was 17 years in searcliini^ ont tlic hisl(jry iA llic fi^nre of 
the Windliani JJaccluis. Jt has been a ji^^-reat pleasure and sat- 
isfaction to me to know tlie names of the ])risoners wlio carved 
it out in Windliam jail in 1776; also t(j learn some of their his- 
tory and descendants. 

In 1878 and 1879 1 sent man\ i)ooks of the story ai Bacchus 
to England, in search of some of the descendants of the British 
prisoners who were confined in Windham jail in 1776. I soon 
received many letters and acknowledgements of the receipts of 
the Bacchus books, a number of which were from the nobility 
and officials of England, such as the Prince of Wales, Duke of 
Edinburgh, Lord Alex. George Russell, Lord Darnley, Lord 
Beaconsfield, First Rt. Hon. William Henry Smith, ^L P. : 
Rt. Hon. Richard A. Cross. ]\L P. : Hon. G. Howard, librarian 
of the House of Commons ; Hon. Edward Augustus Bond, 
British ^luseum, Hon. W. B. Robinson, H. ^L Dockyard, 
Portsmouth, and many others. But two years elapsed before 
anything tangible came to hand. One of the books was ad- 
dressed ^o Henry F. Sneyd, Captain in the Royal Army. It 
appears that he forwarded it to his cousin, Dryden Sneyd. of 
Ashcombe Park, near Leek, Staffordshire, England. 

The first letter I received from the descendants of Com- 
mander Edward Sneyd was from Dryden Sneyd, dated 15th 
Xovember, 1880. He says: 

I have had the pleasure of perusing a book written b}' you. called 
■ The Story of Bacchus,' which interested me very mucli, as I am a 
member of the family of one of the prisoners, viz.: Lieutenant Sneyd. 
therein mentioned. I should feel greatlj^ obliged to vou if vou would 
kindly send me a copy. DRYDEX SXEYD." 

Second letter : 

Ashcombe Park, near Leek. STAFFO.-tDSHiRE. 
25th January. 1881. 

Dear Sir: Having been from home I must apologize for not hav- 
ing answered your kind letter sooner, and to thank you for your nice 
present of the two books, and also the photographs of Bacchus, for 
which I am greatly obliged, they being most interesting to me. I en- 
close you a biographical sketch of the family of Sneyd. I am very dis- 
tantly related to Fdward. of whom you write. A Lieutenant Edward 
Sneyd. whom I suppose to be the same, was uncle to the Rev. Walter 
Sneyd. now of Keele Hall, near X'ewcastle. in this county, was drowned 
in America in 1776. 

I am writing to Rev. Walter Sneyd. and will forward Bacchus for 
his perusal, and will write again to you on hearing from him. I should 
have rather supposed Edward Sneyd had been born at Keele. but it may 
be otherwise: lie undoubtedly was brought up there. Keele was a grant 
from Henr}' VIII to Sir William Sneyd. Kent, but my family have re- 
sided in the county of Stafford for above 600 yearg. and own now large

men's seats in England, and was built by Ralph Sneyd in 1580, and was 
restored at the enormous cost of £140.000, about twenty years since, by 
Ralph, the brother of Walter, the present owner. This house is com- 
I)arati\ely small, but it is in a most lovely situation in its deer park. 
The family of Sneyd is numerous, but Walter and his son Ralph are 
the only male descendants of the name of Sneyd, of Ralph and Barbara, 
the parents of Edward Sneyd, who was drowned in America.

have been in correspondence with Kev. Walter Sneyd, at Keele Hall, 
and find Lieut. Edward Sneyd, R. X., his uncle, was born at Keele in 
1754. I enclose you a copy of the entry in the Keele register: also a 
statement of one of his fellow prisoners of his imprisonment and death. 
Rev. Walter Sneyd was greatly interested with your book, and I took 
the liberty of giving him one of the two copies you so very kindly sent 
me. FIc mentioned of what great interest Edward Sneyd's diary would 
be to him, but I am afraid there is not much chance of its recovery, no 
doubt having been destroyed long. He is curious to know wlu) fur- 
nished you with such an erroneous account of the birth and early life 
of Edward Sneyd. as the family of Sneyd of Keele is better known than 
almost any other in the British Isle. I enclose you five photographs

An account ol the capture and death of Eicutcnant Edward Sneyd, 
R. N., commander of H. M. S. " Bolton Brig," who was born at Keele 
Hall 5th December, 1754, copied from a document in the possession of

from a statement made by one of the sailors who was a fellow prisoner 
with him in Windham jail, whose name, or date, unfortunately does not 

On the 3th (lay of April, 177C). the " Bolton B.rig," commanded by 
Lieut. lulward Sneyd. was taken by a rebel tleet. consisting of nine sail 
under command of one Hopkins. Soon after they had engaged the 
Glasgow, Mr. Sneyd fought them with undaunted bravery, and great 
conduct, and even after he was surrounded by their whole fleet, he gave 
theiu two broadsides and two shells before he struck. We were car- 
ried into New London harbour, and every man put in irons, because we 
would not enlist with the rebels. They allowed us only four ounces 
of bread lur day and four ounces of port to last us two days. We de- 
fied all they could do and were determined by the example and en- 
couragement of our commander. Mr. S. (who in no respect fared better 
than the rest) to die by our colours, rather than purchase life by inglo- 
riously deserting them. After remaining in this deplorable condition 
17 days, they sent us up to Windham prison in Connecticut. Mr. 
Sneyd took tne for his servant, as the villains allowed him no kiufl of 
attendance in his confinement, in short, the barbarous usage lie re- 
ceived from them in consequence of the courageous defense he had 
made and his endeavors to prevent his men from deserting their colors, 
is beyond anything I can explain. They took his parole from him. 
which he had enjoyed but for a short time, and confined him in a 



chiiii^con. so inveterate were they in their resentment towards liini, tliat 
they even ottered me my hberty it I would leave him. But I sc<jrned 
their ot^'er and told them I would never cjuit him as lonj^ as he re- 
mained in such a situation. The villains made not the least difference 
betwixt him and the private sailors, and took from him several presents 
which a Mr. Malhon had made him. to have rendered his continement 
more tolerable. In his dismal situation they kept him from April till 
November, when tired of such a miserable life Mr. Sneyd declared his 
determination of endeavoring at all events to escape, and desired those 
who were of his opinion would join him. as he preferred death itself 
to remaining in the situation they then were. Mr. Cook, a mid-shipman 
belonging to the Scarborough, and three others, immediately declared 
they would go with him. In the beginning of November they broke 
the jail, traveled to a town called Norwich, where they seized a small 
canoe, with which they resolved to attempt to cross the Sound to Long 
Island, but most unfortunately they got into a race (occasioned by the 
different setting of the tides) which presently overset them, when Mr. 
S. and three others after holding fast to the canoe for many hours, w'ere 
at last drowned. The man that was saved was boatswain of the brig, 
who sent in this melancholy account. When he left Windham he gave 
into my charge a bundle of letters and some other things, with his 
journals, to return to him. if happily we should ever meet again. 

Letter from Rev. Walter Sneyd : 

55 Portland Place, London, W., May 17, 1881. 

I beg to acknowledge receipt of your obliging letter, dated April 30th, 
and also of a copy of " Bacchus," with two photographic views of the 
image, which have been forwarded to me from Keele Hall, and for which 
I beg to return you my very sincere thanks. The story of " Bacchus," 
which was first brought to my knowledge by my distant relative, Mr. 
Dryden Sneyd of Ashcombe Park, interested me exceedingly, inas- 
much as the Lieut. Edward Sneyd was my own uncle, for though 105 
years have elapsed since his tragical end, he was my own father's 
youngest brother. My father. Colonel Sneyd, was born in 1752, the 
eldest of the family of 14, 7 sons and 7 daughters, and the head of our 
ancient family. His next brother. Ralph, was born in 1753, was in 
holy orders. Edward, the third son, was born at Keele in 1754. entered 
the naval service, and was engaged in the American war, and all that 
his family ever heard of his sad fate was from the report of one of the 
surviving sailors of the "" Bolton Brig," or " Baumbrig," that had acted 
as his servant, and appears to have been much attached to him. His 
statement of the circumstances of the engagement and defeat, imprison- 
ment, escape, and death by drowning, is preserved in a memorandum 
in my father's handwriting, which I discovered amongst the family 
papers in the monument room at Keele. This statement is substan- 
tially the same as that which you have published in " Bacchus." and its 
concluding sentence is as follows: "When he left Windham he gave 
into my charge a bundle of letters and some other things, with his 
journals, to return to him if happily we should ever meet again." I 
fear there is but little chance of these journals being still in existence. 
If they should be. I need hardly say that they would be most valuable 
and interesting to our family, and I feel greatly obliged by your kindly 
saying that you took some trouble to ascertain whether they have been 
preserved with other papers during reference to Windham jail. Poor 
Edward Sneyd must have been a most gallant young fellow, for at the 
time of his sad death he was only 22 years of age. How strange that 
after the lapse of more than a century these sad but curious details of 
his imprisonment and death should crop up in connection with the 
carved image which has been made known to the world. This from 
interesting little book. WALTER SXEVD.

'i he inlcrest of the laniily in llic iiaccluis lii;iirc seemed to 
be considerable. Captain Henry F. Sneyd, who was in Dixston. 
came to Hartford. March 12, 1881, by recjuest of Dryden 
Sneyd. to make a personal inspection of the tij^ure of liacchus. 
He is a most intellis^a'nt and entertainint( English i:;-entleman. 
Dn Monday 1 went with him to visit Windham (ireen. dined 
at the old Widow Cary tavern, the identical buildini^. and 
imder the espionage of the venerable Judge Swift, an anthofitx 
on historical affairs, saw the foundations of the old jail, and 
other points of historical iiiteroi. Captain Siuxd was enthu- 
siastic over our visit. So it will be seen that around this l)it 
of rude carving cluster man\ romantic historical incidents. 
The apparently hopeless task of ferreting out the descendants 
of the most conspicuous of the prisoners was. by persistent 
effort, accomplished, and although in no sentimental way. yet 
there is a great deal of satisfaction felt both by myself and by 
the wealthy and aristocratic descendants of Conmiander Sneyd.

HISTORY oi' Till-: xokw icii r.Acciius, etc 


21 IJ The history of the Norwich Jiacchus is not (juite so complete 
as the \\'iiulhani ilacchus. However, it is pretty certain that 
it was used as a sii^n in front of the liackns Inn, Norwich, 
I'onn.. lon<4- before the l\e\'ohuionary War. This image was 
carved from a log of pine. The w orkmanship is hner than that 
of the Windham liacchns. and it was probably made with 
tools. It was no (lonl)t carved as a sign for the Backus 
Hotel. It was a connnon thing in the days of a century and 
a half ago to have wooden images as signs for hotels. The 
image is 26^ inches high, and the cask is 21 inches long; 
has a 1)ottle in one hand, and a wineglass in the other. 
For 76 years it was in tlie possession of Colonel George L. 
Perkins, Norwich, Conn. Colonel Perkins said in 1882 that 
he owned this image of Bacchus sign, as they called it, over 70 
years. He said that when he was a small boy it used to sit on 
a signpost in front of the Backus Hotel, and w-as painted black. 
He said that the Backus Hotel stood on the site where Raw- 
son & \\dnpple's store is located on Water Street. 

Colonel Perkins was born in Norwich. August 5, 1788; died 
September 5, 1888, at the age of one hundred years and one 
month. After the death of Colonel Perkins the image or sign 
was presented to A. E. Brooks, Hartford, Conn., by his friend, 
ex-Representative Thomas B. Lillibridge of Norw^ich, through 
the kindness of Islv. Thomas Perkins, son of Colonel Perkins, 
Norw'ich, Conn. 

21 13 General Israel Putnam's Plow. When Putnam was first in- 
formed of the battle of Lexington he was said to be plowing 
in the field. W^hen he heard the news that Lexington had been 
attacked by the British soldiery, he left his plow in the middle 
of the field, unyoked his team, and, without waiting to change 
his clothes, set ofif for the theater of action. The old plow^ van- 
ished from the unfinished furrow, and according to history, 
one or tw^o old Pomfret antiquarians kept track of it and knew- 
right where it was. It was found in the effects of Daniel Put- 
nam Tyler of Brooklyn, Conn., who was a lineal descendant of 
Putnam. In 1891, W. O. Jacobs t^^ Co. of Danielson learned of 
and located its lair, and Mr. Jacolis easily bought it of its 
owner. It was bought of W. O. Jacobs «S: Co. l)y its present 
owner in August, t8o2. 

The Putnam \)\o\\ is a ])relty tough-looking relic, but it is 
intact in all of its jxirts. except its right handle, which is broken 
in the middle. It is both interesting- and \-aluable. however.

to strengthen it. It is apparent that the iron was added to it

where any dared to follow." There is no reason for not sup- 
posing that the saddle was used in Putnam's famous ride down 
the stone steps in (ireenwich. March 26. I77<). The saddle 
itself is of a type noticeably different from the cavalry saddles 
of the present time. The ponmiel is so low as to be scarcely

the history of this tile. He says the tile was found while build- 
ing the railroad from Collinsville to Xew Hartford. He was 
assistant surveyor on the road at that time, and knew where 
and when it was found. It was found at the low er end of Pine 
Meadow, near the house of C. \A'. Oilman ; six or eight perfect 
tiles \vere unearthed, and many broken ones. They came from 
a kiln-dry that was used for drying corn for shipment to the 
West Indies. From 1785 to 1800 Cowles & Gleason of Farm- 
ington had a store in Canton, about five miles south of Pine 
^leadow. At that time Cowles, under the name of Elijah 
Cowles & Co., was largely engaged in the East and \\>st India 
trade, importing his own goods in his own vessels. He sent 
large quantities of cornmcal to the W^est Indies, which had to 
be dried to keep from souring. ^Ir. Dyer says his father, wdio 
lived in Canton at the time, had told him all about the business, 
and where the kiln-dry was situated, namely, near the house of 
Ca])tain Jose])h Wills, nc^w C. \\'. Gilman's. [i(^>7^).l

The following graphic description oi these monuments oi 
war relics was written by :\Ir. Ira E. Forbes, a veteran of Com- 
pany A, Sixteenth Regiment. Connecticut \'olunteers, and 
now of the Hartford Daily Times. 
Monument of \\'ar Relics; a striking design. 

The culminating idea in the collection of war relics made by A. E. 
Brooks of this city, chiefly in the way of arms and aninuniition. lias been 
reached in the form of a monument of singuLir interest and conception 
In the construction of this unique object. 1.833 bullets from the leading 
battlefiekls oi the war. and 124 Union and Confederate buttons have 
l)een utihzed. But this is not the combination chietlv interesting in 
the design. Revolvers, epaulettes, belt-plates worn bv men and officer.- . 
bayonets, canteens, bowie-knives used by the Louisiana Rangers, ex- 
ploded shell from different fields, cavalrv equipment, spurs, and buckle*^ 
have been incorporated in the design with great skill and intelligence.' 
In the first place, the work is a recital in •' lead and iron hail " of the 
war. Every bullet, every broken remnant of shot and shell, every belt- 


plate and epaulette could tell of inspiring scenes and events. The niunn- 
nient is not a patchwork of these relics. Instead it is the clearest and 
most instructive of designs. 

Both sides of the war arc represented in the conception. Four .urcat 
engagements — Petersburg, .\ntietam. Gettysburg, and Fredericksburg 
— constitute tlie salient features of this narrative in relics from the field. 
These events have not been chosen in chronological order. f<jr the 
object to be fibtaincd could not be achieved so accurately in that way. 
Mr. Brooks has aimed to present the Union and Confederate super- 
structures as central figures in the monument. The great armies of 
the North and the South occupy opposite sides. Tlie national gov- 
ernment is represented in the letters U. S.. the combination being made 
from minie balls from Petersburg. It is a fact deserving of more than 
a moment's interest that Petersburg was selected to represent the na- 
tion's triumph. It was there that tlie last vestige of hope entertained 
by the rebels began to vanish. Likewise, at that point the supremacy 
of the government was asserted, with results that will not again be dis- 
puted. The Confederacy, on the other hand, is represented in the 
letters *' C. S.." which are composed of l)ullets from the rebel lines. 
The battle selected is not located on southern soil, but in the state of 
Pennsylvania. Gettysburg has been chosen, because that represented 
the high tide of the Confederacy. The turning point in the war was 
when Pickett's magnificent lines were shattered and decimated beyond 
recovery at Seminary Ridge. The United States and the Confederate 
armies are designated by the letters " U. S. A." and " C. S. .\.." wrought 
in bullets from dozens of battlefields. 

The central i)iece on the government side of the monument is a 
revolver, the barrel of which was exi)Io(led in the hand of a soldier named 
Williams. Beneath this implement of war is a shell that was fired at 
Petersburg. One of the rarest belt-plates to be found in the United 
States figures between ordinary plates worn in the service during the 
war and afterwards. The Union canteen, old and disfigured with rust, 
was found by Captain Lyman Smith of this city, near General McPlicr- 
sf)n's monument at .Atlanta, commemorating the spot where this bril- 
liant officer fell during Sherman's march to the sea. Money could not 
purchase the relic. On the opposite side is a Confederate canteen. It 
is pierced with buckshot in four or five places, and is in singular con- 
trast with the opposite. On one side arc crossed bayonets, while the 
opposite is signalized by bowie-knives that were carried in the belts 
of the Louisiana Tigers. The Confederate belt-plates cannot be dupli- 
cated easily. They represent the styles worn by ofTicers and men. A 
couple of these belt-plates are of peculiar significance, telling of block- 
ade runners that were intercepted, and deeds of daring that were waste<l. 
Both are f)f Britisli origin, one bearing the coat of arms of Great Britain, 
and the other the head of the British lion. Both were captured before 
the blockade runner had penetrated the Union naval lines. One of the 
plates bears the letters *' S. X. \ .," representing the Empire State. One 
from \'irginia is designated by the letters " \^ M. M." \'irginia 
Mounted Militia may have been the significance of these letters, but 
most likely it was something else that was intended. At any rate, the 
key to the meaning is not definitely known this way. Said Mr. Brooks 
with patriotic delight, as he pointed out the combinations: "The 
American eagle is perched above them all," and then it was as worn 
triumphantly through scenes of carnage thirty years ago. Antietani is 
given in the monmnent as the basis for the L'nited States Army and 
Fredericksburg for the Confederate. Again the distinction is most 
admirably conceived. No more important battle was fought during 
the war than .\ntietam. It was the great central engagement in which 
the army of the Potomac staked every interest and hope. Had the 
battle been lost the Union cause would have suffered irretrievably. Mr. 
Brooks has shown consummate judgment in making it the representative 

J. 11. BROOKS COLLIlCriOX. 203 

idea of the Union Army. The selection of Frederickshnr^ as tlie ideal 
of the Confederate battalions is ecjually skillful. The rchel victory at 
Fredericksburg, involving the total defeat of Burnside's grand divi- 
sions, not one of them gaining an inch of ground in the contest, fittingly 
illustrates the spirit and heroism that characteri/A-d the Army of \'ir- 
ginia. The monument which has been inade(|uately described, no pen 
picture l)eing sutlicient to represent its peculiar interest, stands five feet 
and a half in height. The base and shaft are handsomely prop(jrtioned. 
The whole is surmounted with a 32-pounder, the anticjue shot proudly 
capping the work. 

Curiosity will be felt by most people as to the way in which the 
2.000 pieces composing the monument will be kept in place. At the 
outset the frame work was prepared from boards planed and fitted to- 
gether in the form of a regular base and shaft. Every piece has been 
fastened to this wooden frame by means of brads or nails. In order 
that the bullets might not be disfigured by driving the nails through 
them, they were all drilled, the task lasting for days. The revolvers, 
bayonets, bowie-knives, belt-plates, and equipment have all been 
fastened to the surface of the monument by means of the brads, making 
a compact work of the whole. 

212O Aloiiunicnt of War Relics. Artistic arrangement l)y Mr. A. E. 
Brooks. Over 3,000 relics from battlefields on an 8-sided de- 
vice. Important engagements during the four years. 

^Ir. A. E. Brooks, who has one of the finest collections of war relics 
in Xew England, has completed a memorial pedestal of exceptional 
interest, representing scores of battlefields and scenes that has immor- 
talized the heroism of Union and Confederate soldiers during the war. 

There are 3.015 relics in the device, every one of which was obtained 
from the field. The base of the pedestal is composed of bullets arranged 
in eight lines. The number required was 906. The minie-ball was selected 
chiefly for this device. The surmounting corners are made from round 
bullets that were used in the old smooth-bore rifles and muskets. 

The column or shaft of the pedestal is eight-sided. The number 
of bullets incorporated in the octagon surfaces being 880. Belt-plates, 
crossed swords, bugles, artillery designs, each representing special 
features of the service, are included in the construction. 

The period covered by the war is designated by engagements of 
typical interest and importance in the history of the four years' conflict. 

These battles are Bull Run. which was fought at the beginning of 
the struggle. Pea Ridge, which occurred in 1862, the Wilderness in 
1863. and Atlanta in 1864. There were Connecticut troops in each of 
these engagements except Pea Ridge. The latter was one of the his- 
toric engagements in Arkansas, and was fought with great desperation 
on both sides. 

One of the Confederate leaders. General !McCullough. who was 
mortally wounded at Pea Ridge, was in the battle of Wilson's Creek, 
when the Connecticut General, Nathaniel Lyon, was mortally wounded. 
\\'ilson's Creek, which belonged to the series of operations, culminat- 
ing at Pea Ridge, will long be a point of mournful interest to the 
patriots of eastern Connecticut. The battle itself could not be involved 
in the specific record represented by the pedestal, which Mr. Brooks has 
devised, except through the series of operations that constituted the 
^Missouri campaign of 1861 and 1862. ]\Ir. Brooks has done admirably 
in selecting Pea Ridge as one of the typical battles of the war. 

The battle of the Wilderness, which was fought in 1863, was in every 
sense one of the great battles of the war. It takes its place on the 
pedestal with exceptional significance. The year 1864 is represented 
by Atlanta, the central point of interest in the campaign, that terminated 
in Sherman's march to the sea. 


The devastation of Atlanta was a terrible event, justifiable only i)y 
the most imperative exigencies. The campaign that succeeded the 
burning of the noted Southern city was fatal to the Confederacy. It 
disclosed as nothing else could have done the inherent weakness of the 
South during the war. The history of the great conflict is necessarily 
embraced between the events of Hull Run and Atlanta. It will be ob- 
served from the illustration accompanying this article that the alternate 
octagon surfaces of the shaft designate the years of the war. The 
figures are made froin bullets, the environment being made of crossed 
swords, cannon, shields, breast-plates, and curious combinations of war 
materials found on the field. The distinct forms appearing in the names 
of battles and years will elicit especial praise from the observer. Every 
one of the bullets and associate pieces on the shaft is bored and 
fastened separately on the octagon surfaces. 

The capital, surmounting the shaft, is made from 929 pieces. There 
are 55 plates and ornaments in the work, and 191 army buttons are used 
in carrying out the decorator's design. .\ regular mortar shell sur- 
mounts the pedestal, adding effectively to the design as a whole. The 
fact that every piece in this unique and interesting work is from a 
battlefield of the war will increase the inherent value of the design. 
The scores of battlefields from which the relics have been procured are

JIJ7 ."Section of a Tree called Vosi Oak, from the battlefield of Ciiic- 
aiiiaii,cfa. Teiin., September 20, 1863. This \o^ is about 9 feet 
loiijn;' and from 14 t(^ i^) inrhes in dianutir. showinc;" on its 
surface a .qnarled and inuwn tVonl, caused l)y the i^rowth of 
the wootl over bullets, i^rapeshcjt. and pieces of shell. In ad- 
dition to these gnarled overo;ro\vths there are 14 visible i)ieces 
of iron partly embedded in the lo,c^. These are many types of 
missiles, from bullets and canister shot to conical balls from 
rifled camion, frai^ments of shell, one refund cannon ball (a 
Ti-poimder), distributed over a i^reater ])art of the lent^th of 
the surface, showinj;:: that the fire at that point of the battle- 
tuld must have been somethint,^ terrific. 

The missiles in this loc,^ are on one side of it. and show the 
liriuf^ from the L'nion Army. The lo<; was on the (lovernnient 
reservation, and cuttini: ha<l been forbidden, but as the tree 
blew down in a storm this part of it was obtained. 

W. E. Cccvcr. the f^^entlrman who sold the loir to Mr. 
r.rooks, says that it has two u-pound shells in it. canister and 
.i^rapeshot. and fra.trnient of shells. It is considered the finest 
specimen of the kind in the country, and was cut from the tree, 
after it had blown down, by Anderson Murdock. It stood on 
Snodjjrass Hill, near the east line, west of the old house, and 
near the small .crraveyard located tliere. that this par- 
ticular tree must have received the fire of l)otli armies. It 
would have been utterly impossible f<ir a human ]H^in.c: to have 
lived at the particular point of the battlefield where the tr( < 
from which this \n^ was taken stood. (2343.!

222^ Jjreech-loading Cannon, cal. 2 inches, made of wrought-iron. 
The marks on it indicate that it was made in China about the 
year 1373. The cannon is 5 feet 8 inches long; probably the 
charge was fired by a fuse. The breech-loading apparatus or 
breech-block of this wonderful arm is distinct from the 
wrought metal of the cannon, and is charged before being 
placed in position for firing. The bore containing the charge 
is exactly identical with that of the cannon, and in horizontal 
lines. The bores are absolutely in unison. The breech-block 
is held in place by a crossbar and the wrought-iron projection 
from the chamber that penetrates the body of the cannon, hold- 
ing the two together with resistless energy. This breech-block 
is removable at the will of the operator or gunner. A ring is 
attached to it for that purpose. This cannon was sent to the 
United States by the princes of East India with their exhibit to 
the World's Fair at Chicago, 111., and was on exhibition in 
the Art Department in the summer and fall of 1893. It is duly 
authenticated by credentials from the English house in Bom- 
bay which invoiced the collection. [2250.] 

2224 Old Cannon bearing date of 1400. made of wrought-iron. The 
chase was formed of two bars bent longitudinally and sur- 
rounded by a number of rings welded to each other. Sur- 
rounding the whole were three large rings, also a large ring in 
the center to lift it by. The length of the cannon is 2 feet, the 
bore 4 inches, its weight 125 pounds. This old cannon was 
taken from a wreck or sunken ship which had been gradually 
driven to the coast of South Devon, England, in iSgi. There 
was but little of the hull left at that time. The opinion of the 
English authorities was that this ancient vessel belonged to 
the Spanish Armada. [2134.]

service until i860, when it retired. These guns were used for 
salutes on entering ports or i)assing friendly vessels, and for 
guiding back the harpoon crew in case they might be out of 
sight of the whaler. It was not an infre(juent occurrence that 
the harpoon crew were sw cpt out of sight in pursuing the mon- 
sters of the deep. But the crew were almost invariably sure of

2751 John Cookson Breech-loading ^Magazine Clun : its history and 
description. [2003.] 

The gun. as the engraving on it indicates, was made by John Cook- 
son, in 1586. The name is evidently English. Judging, however, from 
the design and character of the work, and from a knowledge of the state 
of art in England at that date, it is surmised to have been of Spanish 
origin, or at least modeled after a similar Spanish design. The ad- 
vanced state of the art in Spain in the latter half of the i6th century, 
together with the facts that similar Spanish work exists, and that a 
trace of Moorish design is visible in the scroll-work of the engraving, 
ail point to this theory. Strangely enough, the place of residence of 
the maker does not appear. 

The gun found its way to Maryland, probably with the early Eng- 
lish colonists, and was finally discovered in Baltimore. It was one of 
a number of guns confiscated after a search for arms by the provost 
marshal in 1863. and was retained in the custody of the United States 
until after the close of the rebellion. It remained unclaimed until 1867. 
and was finally thrown in the scrap-heap, where it was picked up by 
a scavenger, who sold it for a nominal sum. 

Mr. A. E. Brooks of Hartford. Conn., purchased the gun Sept. 24, 



1891, of Richard Ikinzc, a KmiNmith of I'.ahiiiiorc. who gave all the 
information he could regarding the ancient weapon. In the fall of 
1888 the gun was brought to his shop by a man who asked to have it 
repaired and changed to a percussion lock. Mr. Heinzc examined it, 
saw that it was extremely rusty, and considered it of little or no value. 
The alteration of the lock was out of the question. lie finally bought 
the gun for a trifling sum. and \nn it away with a number oi others. 
Some two months later he made a closer examination of the gun. and 
became greatly interested in his " find." He at once began removing 
the rust, and labored faithfully at its restoration for eleven days, until 
he had put it in its present perfect condition. The old arm has been 
loaded and fired several times, and a good score made. 

Aside from the excellence of the workmanship, the design is worthy 
of study. 

It is difficult to tell whether the barrel is twist or laminated. The 
butt-plate is both embossed and engraved. The end sight is a Turkish 
crescent. All the metal work is more or less engraved, showing flags, 
drums, piles of cannon balls, cannon being fired, stacks of muskets, 
boarding-pikes, etc. On the top of the barrel appears, " John Cookson, 
fecit" (made by John Cookson). On the lock is a scroll, bearing the 
maker's name; it is being held up at the left by an angel, at the right by 
a female figure, presumably intended to represent Queen I^lizabeth. 
The stock is made of a peculiar kind of wood, unknown in this country. 
All the trimmings are of iron. 

The letters in the following description refer to the side sectional 


view. The arm is a magazine smooth-bore Hint-lock gun, firing spher- 
ical bullets, weighing 260 grains, and a charge of about 125 grains of 
powder. It has a capacity of ten rounds, and a magazine is also fitted 
to the lock for a similar number of priming charges. 

It is charged on the left side through an opening w-ith a hinged flap, 
the bullets being poured into one compartment (.\), and the powder in 
another adjacent one (n ). 

These compartments connect by cylindrical passages with the central 
chamber in the frame in which is located a solid cylindrical block (c) 
with its axis from right to left. 



This cyliiukr forms the recoil-hlock. and is fitted with two radial 
cavities hirgc enough to h(dd a hall and a charge, and located so that, 
in revohing. the cavities will be opposite the passages from the maga- 
zine. Here the ball drops into the first cavity (u), and the powder into 
the second (k;. and by revf)lving the cylinder to the front the passages 
are closed, and the ball and charge brought in front of the rear end of 
the bore (f), the loading being done with the muzzle held down. The 
bullet then drops in and the block remains with the charge in line with 
the bore. The powder cavity is fitted with a diaphragm (c.) to prevent 
the bullet from dropping into it. 

The powder cavity or chamber is connected by a vent, through the 
axis of the cylinder, with the pan. 

The pan is a cavity in one end of the cylinder or breech-block on 
the right side, and revolves in the lock in front of the magazine con- 
taining the priming charge, where at each revolution it scoops up a 
charge and revolves it in place under the flint and closes the opening 
to the magazine. 

The cylindrical breech-block is revolved by a lever on the left side, 
which also cocks the hammer and closes the pan. 

This automatic action is accomplished by a stop on the cylinder 
acting on a hooked lever-arm attached to and pivoted on the hammer. 
The stop pushes the hammer back by the lever, and the hook on the 
latter pulls the steel pan-cover into place. 

The lock and trigger are the ordinary design, but it is worthy of 
note that the design as regards sear, sear-spring, main spring, etc., is 
the same as that used on the latest flint-lock guns. 

The barrel, front sight, and under side of the guard, are all in one 
piece, and the carving and other works show evidence of the highest 
mechanical skill. 

The only omissions in the provisions for all the necessary points 
in the design, from a mechanical point of view, are those for inserting 
a ward, and preventing the escape of gas through the vent. The former 
is partly compensated by making the bullet slightly larger than the bore, 
and the latter exists in all flint-locks. From a military point of view, 
the design of the arm gives evidence of being far in advance of its time. 
With the magazine charged, the ten shots could be fired in a time 
which would compare very favorably with magazine guns of to-day. 
Very little time is required for charging, as it is only necessary to fill the 
compartments with bullets and powder, with no counting and measur- 
ing. The charges are automatically measured, and the loading is fully 
as accurate as that of metallic cartridges. 

Altogether, the antiquity, design, workmanship, and beauty of the 
gun, make it a most valuable and remarkable relic. 

2752 Ancient Old Crossbow Gun, with sights, mahogany stock, ivory 

ornaments, and brass trimmings ; for shooting quarrels or 
bolts. This weapon is bent by means of a lever fixed to the 
stock, or with the hand alone. [2917.] 

2753 Sixteenth Century Prod, a light crossbow used chiefly in held 

sports. The crossbow (a galet in French because the missiles 
used were stones) of the sixteenth century is the next in order. 
Instead of quarrels or crossbow bolts, this weapon shot leaden 
balls, and even stones. The stock which went between the nut 
and the bow was generally ciu-ved. and often made oi iron. 
This weapon, of medium strength, is bent 1)\- means oi a le\er 
fixed to the stock, or with the liand alone. |2giS.|

on Sunday. March 24. iSS(j. The followinj; i> a -h..rt -l.rtcii 
of his strange history : 

For a year or more he had suffered from a cancer on the hp, which 
of late had made rapid progress, and it was largely on account of his in- 
curable afl^iction that the Humane Society tried to provide for him a 
home. He was taken to the Hartford Hospital and left it the same 
day, and followed to the last the wandering life to which he had been 
accustomed for twenty-five years or more. He was a familiar character 
over a considerable part of this state all that time. He dressed wholly 
in leather, hardly ever spoke to anyone, would take food and tobacco 
from certain persons, but no money, and went over and over again a 
certain fixed route, wdiich occupied a little over a month, and on which 
he was generally punctual to date. For years he has been described at 
frequent intervals by newspapers, and of late cuts have been published, 
made from a photograph. A few^ years ago what purported to be the 
story of his life was extensively printed. It professed to be founded 
on documents which he dropped, and which were picked up by some- 
one who put the story together. Substantially it was as follows: His 
name was Jules Bourglay, and he was born at Lyons, in France, was 
well educated and became attached to the daughter of a wealthy leather 
merchant named Laron. ]\Ir. Laron was greatly incensed when he 
learned of the affair, but young Bourglay argued his case in so able and 
manly a manner as to soften the rich man's heart, and he finally decided 
to .make an offer to Jules. This was to take him into the leather busi- 
ness for a year, and if he proved himself energetic and possessed of good 
business qualities, he was to have as a reward the hand of the daughter 
in marriage. On the other hand, if he proved unworthy of confidence, 
he must give up his suit and go aw-ay. 

Jules accepted, of course, and was soon in the office of his prospec- 
tive father-in-la\v as a confidential man and agent. This was in 1857. 
the year when leather fell 40 per cent. Bourglay had no inkling of the 
unforseen danger, and, thinking he saw an opportunity to contribute 
toward filling his employer's coffers, he speculated largely with a com- 
modity that was eventually to drag him down to ruin and disgrace. 
Finally the crash came. Thousands of men in the leather trade were 
either ruined or throAvn out of work, and as poor Jules reeled away 
from the office with the curses of his impoverished employer ringing in 
his ears, his mind became turned. He Avas found two days later wander- 
ing about the streets in a half-dazed condition, calling on his loved one 
with endearing names and cursing the ill luck that had thwarted his 
hopes of a bright future. His father took him home and he was 
tenderly nursed, but to no purpose. He became a raving maniac. For 
two years he was confined in a madhouse. From there he finally es- 
caped to this country, where all trace of him was lost for years. His 
relatives finally obtained information of his whereabouts, and wrote 
to the New^ York authorities, giving his past history, and directing 
them to spare no expense in finding out his condition, both mentally 
and physically. He was discovered traveling through Litchfield county, 
this state, as a plumber, noted for eccentric behavior, and clad entirely 
in sole leather. He never took anything but food or tobacco for his 
work, and he always slept in barns. He was very reticent about his 
past history, and would only give his name. When asked if he wished 
to return to France he quickly replied: " No. no," with a shudder of 
fear. His relatives were informed that he was harmless and abhorred 
the society of men or the idea of returning to France. Since then 
nothing has been heard from them, and he has been wandering about 
the country in his heavy suit of leather, doing penance, as is supposed, 
for his disastrous failure in early life. He forsook the iilumbing busi- 
ness years ago.
